For 161 years, our Parish has been the worshipping Catholic Community on the north end of Effingham. We are a vibrant parish of 1400 families, blessed with many spirit-filled “intentional disciples” committed to their personal journey with Jesus. The pillars of our faith journey are Hospitality, Prayer, Formation, and Service, and our website will fill you in on the many opportunities we have to grow in our faith as we encounter the living presence of Jesus.
Our Catholic Parochial Schools are one of our greatest assets in our desire to heed the Gospel call to “Go Make Disciples.” This year (2018) marks the 150th year since we opened our doors to our grade school. Blessed by the presence of the Notre Dame Sisters, we began this mission and have been successfully “catching men and women, boys and girls” for the Lord.
Come be our guest, better yet – come join our family. Encounter Christ with us and then Joyfully tell the Good News with us, as well.
Fr. Chuck Edwards
